Leopold Stokowski - Chronological Discography

of Electrical Recordings 1925 to 1940

Stokowski recording

 

Stokowski and the Philadelphia Orchestra Recording, in the Academy of Music, probably in late 1936.  Note the microphone suspended from wires.  It appears to include the famous Western Electric 394  transmitter or other condenser microphone transmitter connected to its power supply and amplifier box: one of the leading condenser microphones of the era.

 


 

Leopold Stokowski - Philadelphia Orchestra Chronological Discography Electrical Recordings

 

This is a chronological listing of the recordings Stokowski made with the Philadelphia Orchestra during his period of Principal or Co-conductor from 1925 to 1940.  All recordings listed here are Victor Red Seal recordings of the Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by Leopold Stokowski.  Also included are those experimental recordings of the orchestra made by Bell Laboratories in 1931 and 1932 and restored by Ward Marston for AT&T and issued in 1980.  You can read about these Bell Telephone recordings by clicking on Leopold Stokowski, Dr. Harvey Fletcher and the Bell Laboratories Experimental Recordings.  Also not included are the 1939 recordings the Philadelphia Orchestra did for Walt Disney"s film Fantasia.

 

If you wish to consult the listing of the Stokowski recordings made with the acoustic process, click on Leopold Stokowski - Philadelphia Orchestra Chronological Discography Acoustic Recordings .   

 

Note on listening to the Stokowski recordings

 

The chronological table of Stokowski recordings, below, provides two links for each recording:

 

1.   The column to the right labeled "Link" will take you to the page of this stokowski.org site which discusses the recording.  Simply click on the word "Page".

 

2.   The column to the right labeled "MP3" gives a link to the file, in mp3 format of the recording. Simply click on the word "MP3" to download and listen to the mp3 file.  Also note any MP3 files that are indicated as being large, since they may take some time to download.

 

All the music files linked in the table below are in mp3 format (128 mbps).   This means that they are of different sizes.  For example, the second file in the list, the April 29, 1925 Borodin ‘Polovetzki Dances’ is small - 3.6MB. In contrast, the 1929 Le Sacre du Printemps file is large. Part 1 is 14MB and Le Sacre part 2 is 16MB.

 

Of course, when you click on the word "MP3" to download the music, it will take a longer time to download the large files, and a shorter time for the smaller files. The exact time will depend on the speed of your internet connection, but may take several seconds or even several minutes.

 

At the time of writing, not all music has been transcribed from 78 RPM disks and encoded in mp3 files.  If there is no link "MP3" shown, this means there is not yet a music file available.

 

The right-most column of the table below is labeled "prem" and provides a symbol for those recordings which are premieres.  * means world premiere recording, + means electrical premiere recording (an acoustic recording had preceded).  Only commercially issued recordings are so indicated.

1   Harry O. Sooy In his memoires states: "...December 8th, 1924: After considerable work remodeling the 5th floor, Building #15, for an additional Recording Room for the Laboratory, we made our first records of the Philadelphia Orchestra in this studio on this date..."   You can read of my analysis of where these recordings were made by clicking on Installation of Electrical Recording Equipment in Victor Building number 15, Camden .
2   page 102.  Smith, William Ander.  The Mystery of Leopold Stokowski Fairleigh Dickinson University Press. New Jersey 1990. ISBN-13: 978-0838633625  I have been asked if others did not orchestrate the pieces such as the Frescobaldi or Palestrina. Smith identifies Stokowski as the orchestrator of these two pieces, confirmed by the Stokowski score collection.  Some have suggested Fritz Stein (1879-1961), a musicologist, and colleague and biographer of Max Reger (1873-1916) who did orchestrate some baroque works, including Gabrieli"s Sonata pian e forte from the "Sacrae symphoniae", which Stokowski recorded.  Fritz Stein was also the discoverer of the manuscript of the so-called "Jena Symphony", once thought to be a work by Beethoven. H. C. Robbins Landon later demonstrated that it was by Friedrich Witt (1770-1837).  However, the Frescobaldi and Palestrina orchestrations were by Stokowski.

Note on listening to the Stokowski recordings

 

The recordings in this site are files in mp3 format (128 mbps) encoded from my collection.  Links to the mp3 files are located in two places:

 

First - in the page covering the year of the recording.  For example, links to a 1926 recording are found in the page:   1926 - Stokowski - Philadelphia Orchestra Recordings

 

Second - in the Chronological Discography page.  For example, links to a 1926 recording are also found in the electrical recordings chronological discography page:  Chronological Discography of Electrical Recordings   This page lists all the electrical recordings from 1925 to 1940 made by the Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by Leopold Stokowski and issued by Victor, including of course the 1926 recordings.

 

The mp3 files in this site are (usually) encoded at 128 mbps.  This means that the files are of different sizes, according to the length of the music.  For example, the second electrical recording, the April 29, 1925 Borodin ‘Polovetzki Dances’ is small (3.6MB).  In contrast, the 1929 Le Sacre du Printemps file is large.  Le Sacre du Printemps part 1 is 14MB and Le Sacre du Printemps part 2 is 16MB.

 

This means that a large file will take a longer time to download, depending on your internet connection speed.  Please keep this in mind when you click to listen to - download a particularly music file.  You may click the link to the music file, but need to wait a number of seconds or even minutes to listen to the file.
